History - written by New York Daily Photo
This rock-cut brownstone, terra-cotta and brick structure was built in 1889 for the Manhattan Savings Institution (hence the monogram "MSI" at the top) and designed by Stephen D. Hatch. The building was in serious disrepair after years of neglect and in 1987 there was a complete restoration and conversion to residential loft apartments (known as the Bleecker Tower), already fetching millions of dollars in the late 1990s. It is alternately called the Atrium Building (not to be confused with The Atrium at 160 Bleecker), after clothing retailer Atrium who now occupies the ground floor (formerly home to the elegant Blue Willow restaurant).

Fun Facts
  • The rooftop of the building was a matte painting in the movie for the optical effects. (text written by Chris Buchner)
  • In 2003, Johnny Lightning re-released the popular Ecto-1A 1/64 scale die-cast car that they had mass-produced with variants over the last decade. The packaging of the first run of the 2003 editions featured a flipped image of the Broadway side of the building and the neighboring building next to it. Sharing the packaging was the diorama featuring Ecto-1A, a police car, the boys in miniature and the scene of Mr. Stay Puft walking past 2 Columbus Circle. (text written by Chris Buchner)
